Rebellin Linux Offers Best of Both Gnome Worlds

Both versions generally performed well. The Rebellin distro is impressive considering its small development team. Rebellin is not without a few glitches, however. One major problem I had with several of my computers testing the distro was with the audio playback in both the GNOME and the Mate editions. It did not play back. I double checked all the settings, even making sure that the mute option was not checked. Another issue affected just the Mate edition. The touchpad settings are not available, and the Touchpad tab itself is missing. The Synaptics Touchpad Driver is not being loaded in Rebellin Mate, according to Rebellin's developer. He posted a workaround that may temporarily resolve the problem. It is a multistep process that is not very straightforward. Read more

Debian and the Internet of Things

Everybody is talking about the Internet of Things. Unfortunately there is no sign of it in Debian yet. Besides some smaller packages like sispmctl, usbrelay or the 1-wire support in digitemp and owfs, there is not much software to control devices over a network. With the recent upload of alljoyn-core-1504 this might change. Read more

AMDGPU-PRO Beta 2 vs. Mesa 11.3 + Linux 4.6: Very Competitive For Linux Gamers

Following last week's AMDGPU-PRO 16.20.3 "Beta 2" driver release of AMD's new hybrid driver stack for Linux that makes use of the AMDGPU open-source kernel DRM driver with the closed-source OpenGL driver derived from Catalyst / Radeon Software, I set out to do a fresh open vs. closed-source driver comparison. For the Radeon R9 285, R9 290, and R9 Fury, I compared the performance of this new AMDGPU-PRO driver against Mesa 11.3-devel Git and Linux 4.6 for the latest open-source driver stack. Read more

Petros Koutoupis' RapidDisk

RapidDisk is an open-source and enhanced Linux RAM drive solution led by BDFL Petros Koutoupis (who also writes for Linux Journal) that allows users to create, resize and remove RAM drives dynamically or map those same RAM drives as a cache to slower data volumes. The latest version 4.0 release adds a series of complementary improvements, such as kernel module optimizations, code cleanup/redesign and bug fixes. RapidDisk consists of a collection of kernel modules, an administration utility, high-availability scripts and a RESTful API for third-party integration. By design, RapidDisk volumes are thinly provisioned and will allocate memory only upon usage. Read more
